School run ban may be anti-obesity step too far


Anonymous 2.15 pm, where are all of these child abductions and murders that you allude to? I doubt that there are more today than there have been in the past. Children need to be educated on personal safety; how to cross the road safely; not to accept sweets/ toys from strangers; not to go off with strangers, but the biggest danger to children are not strangers but people known to them. The irony is that parents justify driving their offspring to school because of traffic levels, ehen most of the traffic is parents taking their children to school. Walking to school by themselves should not be a problem for year 6 children. However, I do not agree that the school run should be banned.
